Artist: Ken HOWARD RA

Ken Howard was born in 1932. He studied art at Hornsey School of Art from 1949 to 1953. Ken then did his National Service with the Royal Marines before returning to study at the Royal College of Art from 1955 to 1958. Howard then went on to win a British Council Art Scholarship to Florence from 1958 to 1959.

The first Ken Howard one-man show was held at the Plymouth Art Centre in 1955. Subsequent art exhibitions were held in 1966 and 1968 at the John Whibley Gallery. From then on Ken Howard exhibited extensively, both nationally and internationally, particularly with the New Grafton Art Gallery from the early 1970s. Ken Howard was given a retrospective exhibition in 1972 at the Plymouth City Art Gallery

In 1979 Ken Howard was appointed by the Imperial War Museum as official British artist in Northern Ireland. He also worked with the British Army in Germany, Cyprus, Oman, Hong Kong, Nepal, Norway, Canada, Belize and Brunei from 1973 to 1982.

Ken Howard is a master at capturing light in both oil and watercolour paintings. Today Howard is known as one of the leading British Artists for his ability to fuse light and atmosphere in his contemporary paintings. The subjects for Ken Howard contemporary paintings range from studio nudes to Venetian scenes and Cornish beaches.

It is useful to remember when you commission a portrait that you are engaging in an interpretation of the sitter through the eyes of the artist. Visiting the artist, seeing work 'in the flesh' and talking through details of the portrait commission is all part of the portrait painting process. Portraiture artists at Red Rag include Darren Baker, David Cobley , Simon Davis and Charles Hardaker
